Tall, proud, and TOTALLY bright... this award-winnin' gal sure knows how to WORK IT in the garden, for sure!!! BIG flowers open with amazing color (polychrome of orange, peach, and raspberry), with huge waxy green throat that lasts all day. Great substance and sculpting for a diploid... how unusual! Why, I can almost hear her heels clapping on the runway

Truth is, I always loved the cultivar "Orange Velvet"... southerners had been raving about that beauty for years. Much to my dismay, the latter just wouldn't live in my former PA locale... too tender. It took a few generations of breeding, But I finally got one that's immensely larger, heavier in every way... and DORMANT! Woo Hoo! I couldn't be happier, and I'm sure northerners will love it as much as I do (in my personal "Top 5" on the property!!!)!

Please note this plant is a "mid-late" season bloomer, and rebloomer. It's really nice to have a big display of this plant in the later season, as she's QUITE the showpiece... and the photographer's dream, as the polychrome is so vividly ethereal on this one. Also proving to be a great breeder herself, with the new "Chromatose" (Owen, 2016) as proof!

AHS HM Award winner, 2014! Up for Award of Merit in 2017.
